Those of you that know me in person, know that I absolutely LOVE buttons!
I love them so much that in the past I have happily taken buttons as a partial payment for local orders, hehe!
I am always on the hunt for new ways that I can use them, the possibilities are endless!
My favorite button art that I have been doing a lot of lately,
has been button mosaic art photo frames & mirrors.
They really are so relaxing to create and a lot of thought goes in to
the actual placement of each piece.
This is a great craft to do with an absolutely beautiful outcome
everytime - that is if you have enough buttons!
Here are a few I have done lately.....
I especially love the super colorful ones, it reminds me that spring is here, even though I cant see it outside!!
I love that in the white/creme one above, there are quite a few hand blackened brass creatures and little things hiding about within the frame.
I have also done a few mixed media frames that are quite different but I'll leave this post about buttons!
~**....Now for my question to you all....**~
I am looking for a good place to get buttons! I'm reaching out to my fellow crafters to see if any of you know where to get buttons at a decent price.
Don't say my local thrift store.... they are the most expensive for buttons
I have EVER come across!
They are charging between $1.50 to $7.00 for 3-6 buttons!!
My local fabric store is a lot cheaper.
Possibly one of you may know of a place online where you have ordered from before? I like to have feedback before I purchase online.
I hope you enjoy my creations!
